So I am sure that my statements will trigger some readers/viewers, and I even anticipated the triggering event hoping to lower the effect with the prediction itself (let's see if that works) As a rider of dual sports since the 70's, I have found it disconcerting when recommending them to new riders, or troubled riders, or the bored and unfulfilled/disillusioned. My comments go mostly unheeded, and I have always been troubled by this. I have long been aware of the real issue - Dual Sports are NOT Cool. If you disagree with me, you are a DS rider, and have different perspective than the rest of the sheep. You may think they are cool because you would certainly not do anything that was not cool....right? I am talking BIG PICTURE here folks, and I am hoping to figure out maybe how we can change it. But since music & movie stars all agree with me, I think we should start with the first step, and admit we have a problem. What do you think?
